I'll take a look at that.

Sorry, I mostly use file:/// (for /etc), or svn+ssh (for /) - so I don't really test the
authentication problems.

Good catch, I'll try that.

No, it's not *that* easy.
The opt___store_env_noempty just takes everything after a '$' and tries to use that as
an environment variable.

You'd have to write a new parser, to substitute only /\$\w+/ (in regex-speak); then
slashes and other things can be included.

Yes; I'd be grateful for that.
I cursed myself because of that a few times; contrary to my initial opinion the symlink
hasn't proved useful yet.

Once again: thanks a lot.

Would you try to get that into debian and ubuntu? Pretty please ;-)



Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
             Try fsvs (fsvs.tigris.org)!
